This left empty and very numb. This movie examines the religion and national pastime of American....racism. It examines the police shooting issue from the victims perspective..When police shoot no matter how dysfunctional they are, it self defense and if Anyone of color challenges the dysfunction, ita violation better a reason to kill..With rodney king, the first videotaped sacrificial lame to the numerous folk who have been unjustly killed, this movies shows one America with its media and armament secures and adheres to the religion of racism and another who is apart of the religion that regularly sacrifices them because of their...(fill in the bank)..The movie gave us a look into the modern day underground railroad and the ugliness of what jesus experienced by the hands of Judas..Finally love and living life when we realize it's short lived..You can kill a person not a revolution..I purchased this movie because, Queen and slim exist everyday in all of us..The question is simple. How do I want to die, if I cant live in peace? The other statement is that everyone is not team. Finally, never sell your soul...
I'll be honest, I only watched the beginning of this. I'm so old I know within 10 minutes what the movie will be like. Yes, when you have watched as many movies as I have, you will be the same as me. It's true that there are episodes of wrongful police shootings, but they don't unfold like this. Any police officer, after checking license and registration, would then proceed to a drunk driving test such as a breathalyzer, in this situation, unless the driver resembled a suspect on the loose. No breathalyzer, no other tests, instead a check of the trunk, for a well dressed couple who clearly aren't reeking of marijuana nor wearing gang colors. Give me a break.

Melina Matsoukas is a force to be reckoned with. This film was sublime. Fully developed characters, insane cinematography and both Jodie and Daniel did a phenomenal job. It made me weep about and also celebrate the beauty of being black.
Excellent movie plot with nice cinematography. Catching the rural back drop and locations made it seem very realistic. All actors did a great job. Bokeem Woodbine is going to win an oscar one day as he played a great supporting role.
This movie was amazing, beautiful, love , everything I want in a relationship in a man , I can not believe how good this one . I hate the part where jr did not use his head . This movie touch my heart and soul.I love the relationship between both main characters an there family. Its amazing that this movie shows something that if we saw on the news we would twist it. These two powerful characters at no point praised killing cops but only protection of self. This movie was everything.I hope to see the director one day an pick her brain a little more. This was brilliant.The ending was sad I actually cried . A must watch for real especially during quarintine 2020
